3238. FREE PORTS, Honfleur.—[continued].

Some late regulations of
the King and Council in favor of the commerce
of the United States having given us room to
hope that our endeavors may be successful to
remove a good part of it from Great Britain to
France, Honfleur presents itself as a more important
instrument for this purpose than it
had heretofore appeared. We are, therefore,
now pressing more earnestly its establishment
as a free port, and such other regulations in
its favor as may invite the commerce to it.—
To M. Famin. Washington ed. ii, 53.
(P. 1786)
